CFF // Foxtrot

Dir Samuel Maoz | 2017 |  Israel/Switzerland/Germany/France | 108 mins | Drama (Hebrew with subtitles)

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 74th Venice International Film Festival, this stunningly shot offering from Samuel Maoz (Lebanon) charts the story of a family who receive tragic news from their son's remote military post. 

Presenting a ‘fierce nightmare vision of Israel” (Xan Brooks for The Guardian), Foxtrot is gripping, urgent and witty in its exploration of gut-wrenching grief set against a backdrop that is in equal parts desolate and vivid. It’s been denounced by Israel’s Minister of Culture as ‘cooperation with the anti-Israel narrative’ and defended by the filmmaker as a criticism that comes from a place of love for his home country, but Foxtrot is equally effective whether taken as a bruising sociopolitical statement or simply as a well-acted, visually arresting drama.
